A: Your question cannot be answered until a real estate attorney reviews all of the documents and facts to learn exactly what happened. I recommend that you immediately consult with a real estate attorney and have this investigated so that you will know your legal rights and options. This is time sensitive. Legal rights can be lost if you do not act promptly.
